MirandaDickinsonAuthor - yesterday
Hi lovelies! I'm so sorry for the radio silence but I'm right in the middle of moving house so everything is a bit crazy right now!
I just wanted to update you on Book 9 things... I met with my editor Caroline and agent Hannah on Monday to go over plans for the new book and saw some initial cover designs - oh WOW, they are GORGEOUS! I'm just waiting for confirmation on a couple of things from my publisher but as soon as I get the go-ahead I'll tell you when Book 9 will be published and, hopefully, some other exciting news. Cross everything for me!
I'll announce the winner of my first #getinvolved challenge next week, and give you another chance to see your suggestion in the new book. So keep watching this page!
What I can tell you about my new book is that it's a properly romantic story set in one of my favourite places in the world. I hope the story will transport you there and make you believe that magic is possible... ✨🌟💖

Hi lovelies! It's time... Fancy helping me with suggestions as I write #Book9? I'm bringing back my #getinvolved challenges! Here's the first one:
In the story, Seren MacArthur is left running her late father's craft shop. Name an item in the shop that reminds her of him 🌟
Leave me your suggestion in the comments below this post - the winning suggestion will go into Book 9 and I'll thank you in my acknowledgements in the book. Go for it! xx

Hi lovelies! It's been a crazy few weeks - I'm preparing to move house while writing Book 9 for a fast-approaching deadline. I have two vlogs ready to edit, so those will be appearing very soon. In the meantime, if you missed the amazing Falling in Love and Fandom event I did with Maggie Harcourt, Lauren James and Michelle Toy at Waterstones Birmingham a couple of weeks ago, don't worry. The lovelies at Heart Full of Books filmed the whole thing! Find out which of hasn't embarrassed ourselves in front of Neil Gaiman (yet), who we would invite to dinner, which Hogwarts house we belong to and what we really think of fan fiction... Enjoy! xx

Hi lovelies, look what I found while doing a huge clearout of my office at home... It's the original list of characters from my third novel, It Started With a Kiss! As you'll see, several characters and plot points didn't make the end book. But this is where it all began! xxx
